Trump pardons Butter the Thanksgiving turkey

President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up to Butter, a 47-pound National Thanksgiving Turkey, as first lady Melania Trump looks on in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, November 26, 2019. Trump took advantage of the light-hearted traditional Thanksgiving turkey pardoning of Butter, and his alternate Bread, to take jabs at his favorite political rivals: Adam Schiff, Democrats, and the media.
